Welcome Guiseppe Scarfone to TheRuntime.com
I just wanted to mention that we added a new blogger here on theruntime.com (actually we have a few more in the pipeline. Guiseppe (“G” hereafter) is my workplace’s resident Reporting Services guru. He’s gonna focusing on Reporting Services (duhh), SSIS (which he also does), and Analysis Services (an area I bet most of us could use some additional knowledge of).
He already put up an intro post here.
Theruntime.com is no more… Hello ALT.NET… NOT!
At MIX09, i got an opportunity to really sit down with a number of the folks in the ALT.NET community, most notably Christopher Bennage and Rob Eisenberg of Bluespire Consulting. They walked me through a few scenarios and showed me some code and how they do things.

I have tried to correct the problem... sometimes I swear that no one who develops for SubText really tests on community-based sites). Thomas has been blogging for almost as long as I have (4 years). He specializes in SQL and VB. Check out his stuff! Oh yeah, he’s our first non-US blogger (he’s from the land down under).

There’s a gory story for why we are here now which I’ll save for a rant later. The only real thing you need to be aware of is that if you want your picture to appear in comments register your email...
